The surgeon will examine your face and will take photographs to show your chin from the side. This is the view that shows whether the chin needs augmentation or not.

The surgeon will also have a look at your bite to see whether you need to have your teeth corrected or whether you need to consider having the whole jaw moved forward. This may be recommended if you have a significant malocclusion where the upper teeth overlap the lower teeth by a large amount.

There are various different implant materials available, and these will be discussed with you at this point.

We prefer to use a hard silicone implant in most people, which can either be inserted just on the front of the chin bone or extend around the sides of the jaw as well. Usually the extended chin implant looks better because it gives a better overall shape to the jaw.
